This is an exciting moment for all at Speed Endurance HQ as we welcome a new author to the site... and he's a good one.
Sander Englund Smørdal is a Norwegian national swimmer and current holder of the Norwegian short course 50m (21.89) and 100m (48.40) free national records. This makes Sander officially the fastest writer at Speed Endurance.
Sander also publishes the Simma.nu site as well as working for TV2 in Norway. Check him out on Twitter too.
As you have probably noticed, this blog has been extremely quiet recently, but we are about to undergo a phoenix-like rise from the ashes.
First up will be a detailed look at the major swimming nations post-London. What went right, what went wrong and what the future holds.
As always with Speed Endurance, you might not read too many breaking news stories here, but we do hope that what you read hasn't been written before anywhere else. Giving unique takes and analysis is always the goal.
